Learning from the DALE house and other famous California houses, this project seeks a way to catch the mild climate in Southern California and create different possibilities between interior and exterior space. We use movement to help the house transform into different kinds of plans, and each plan has its unique relationship between the outdoor landscape and indoor space. On the other hand, this house uses movement to create space that could influence its residents in a more abstract way, exploring how the movement could generate moods like relaxation for its inhabitants.
